SOUTHERN EYRE SOUTH 9/150 DEF TASMAN 10/75

Southern Eyre South have recorded a big win in the return of cricket for 2022, defeating Tasman by 75 runs at Wangary on Saturday.

The home side elected to bat first and despite some tight bowling from Bodhi Fauser and Cody Siebert openers Ben Smith and Ryan Siebert got SES to 21 runs after 10 overs.

Luke Strudwick would claim the first wicket as Smith was caught by Fauser for 13 but Siebert continued to find runs with Tom Morgan until the latter was caught by C. Siebert for 16, SES on 2/67 after 26 overs.

Roger Puckridge made a small impact but three overs later he was caught by Jed Siebert for seven, which brought Hamish Rowsell to the crease as together with Siebert pushed SES past triple digits.

Rowsell would end up caught by Andrew Frick for 14 and in the next over Aaron Siebert was run out for two as SES was on 5/121 after 37 overs.

Already making a half century R. Siebert would continue until the 42nd over when he was caught out for a well hit 57.

Tasman would claim three more wickets before the innings ended, C. Siebert bowled Damien Green for three while in the final over Frick claimed Andrew Butler (16) and Eli Giddings (0) before the innings came to a close, SES finishing on 9/150.

Of Tasman's bowlers Frick was top wicket taker with 3/27 off his nine overs while C. Siebert took 2/18 off eight which included one maiden while Fauser allowed just 21 runs with three maidens.

The SES attack struck in the first over as R. Siebert had Fauser out lbw for a duck, and in his next over Jaiden Jude was caught by Rowsell for four.

Will Charlton would also strike, another Rowsell catch saw Frick out for 17 followed by Mitchell Jude bowled for one, after 10 overs Tasman were in trouble on 4/37.

The next ball saw T. Morgan bowl Jack Bunder out for 13 as Tasman struggled to make runs over the next 10 overs, the combined SES bowling attack allowing just 14 runs off the bat, the visitors on 5/54.

Butler bowled Luke Strudwick out for seven with Giddings and Smith to clean up the remaining wickets. Giddings in the 30th over claimed the scalps of Oscar White (6) and J. Siebert (0).

Smith claimed the final two wickets of Jonte Durdin (0) and Aaron Davies (1) to have Tasman all out in the 33rd over on 75.

Off his eight overs Charlton took 2/26 with two maidens while R. Siebert, Smith and Giddings made an impact with their short time with the ball, taking 2/1, 2/5 and 2/8 off a combined 8.1 overs.

CHARLTON 10/124 DEF TOD RIVER 10/41

Charlton's bowlers ripped through Tod River to record a 83-run victory at Centenary Oval on Saturday.

Charlton elected to bat first and openers Dylan Colman and Connor Madden got their side to a good start, combining for a 52-run partnership across 16 overs before Madden missed an attacking shot and was stumped by Darcy Wiseman for 27.

Colman fell two overs later, Zac Treloar claiming him lbw for 28, who together with Jagga Cross managed to keep the batsmen on their toes. Cross would claim the next wicket, getting Ryan Cottrell caught behind for three.

Trevor Matheson showcased some great batting, hitting a four followed by a six in the 25th over, before he too fell to a Wiseman stumping, out for 10, Charlton 4/86 after 26 overs.

Cross would claim two big scalps as Luke Yancic (11) and Stephen Rees (1) were both caught by Max Coote. Marley Butler and Tim Wiseman looked to clean up the remaining batting order but Nick Wright posed a challenge, finding the boundary for four three times.

Wiseman impressed with three wickets, starting by bowling Jack Shanley for seven and in his next over claimed Camden Madden (0) and Wright (18) before James Fuss was run out for 1 in the following over to see Charlton all out on 124 in the 39th over.

Cross was Tod River's top wicket taker with 4/25 off nine overs while T. Wiseman impressed with 3/6 off his three overs and Treloar took 2/16 off nine with four maidens, special mention to wicket keeper D. Wiseman with one catch and two stumpings.

Charlton would strike with the very first ball as Shanley bowled out Jake Richards for a golden duck as runs were hard to come by early for Tod River.

They would lose two more wickets within the first 10 overs with Harrison Lawlor run out for one and Nick O'Leary caught for two to see them at 3/11 after 10.

Wright was having success with the ball, keeping the Tod River runs limited and claiming another wicket with Butler caught for five before Fuss would make his own dent in the River batting lineup.

Coote hit his side's first boundary for the day before he was caught by Connor Madden for four and in his next over Fuss almost scored a hattrick as he claimed Cross and D. Wiseman both for zero, before another duck fell in the following over as Treloar was run out to see Tod River at 8/27.

Wilson McShane was the best with the bat for Tod River, finding the boundary for four twice to finish not out on 17 but his efforts could not stop the inevitable, Charlton picking up the final wickets of T. Wiseman (4) and Mark Davey (0) to have Tod River all out on 41 in the 24th over.

There were some commanding bowling performances from Charlton, Fuss was top wicket taker with 4/11 off six overs, Wright took 2/6 off seven with three maidens and Shanley off his four overs had three maidens with 1/1.
